      Cotton fields treated with Gossyplure pheromone for pink bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders), management were surveyed to evaluate the effectiveness of the pheromone treatments. Fields were randomly chosen within four separate areas of the Parker Valley and Palo Verde Valley and sampled weekly for presence of pink bollworm (PBW ) larvae. No differences were found in cotton yields between fields treated with pheromone and non- treated fields.
